Apple iPhone users consume less data than Android users
Sprint CEO Dan Hesse stated in a recent Mobile World Live interview that iPhone users are more profitable for the carrier because they use less data than Android users.
“iPhone customers have a lower level of churn, and they actually use less data on average than a high-end, 4G Android device,” said the executive. So from a cost point of view and a customer lifetime value perspective. They’re more profitable than the average smartphone customer.”

Research In Motion hasn’t had an easy time as of late. The company is struggling to keep up with competitors in both the tablet and smartphone space. Now it seems the company has been dealt another blow: the iPhone has, for the first time, outsold the BlackBerry in RIM’s native Canada.

iPhone rumor: Autumn, LTE, new dock plug
The latest comes from iMore, which today posts some chewy, though anonymously-sourced hardware details about Apple’s next smartphone.
Those include a move to a 4G LTE radio like the one the third-generation iPad ships with, a display that’s “similar if not same sized” to Apple’s long-time 3.5-inch spec, and the move to a smaller dock port for charging and data transfers. (Pic)

iPhone 5 Will Not Feature Rumored 4.6-inch Display
People say that Apple needs to equip its next flagship model with a bigger screen, if it wants to crush rising competition and give a complete multimedia experience to users. It is speculated that Samsung’s next flagship model – Galaxy S3 is coming with 4.7- or 4.8-inch screen. So, bloggers say that the next iPhone needs a bigger screen to save it from getting killed by Galaxy S3.
But, we do not think that way. Apple is always sticking to 3.5-inch screen size for its iPhone and 9.7-inch screen for iPad.

The report quotes a South Korean news outlet that Apple will use a 4.6-inch display on the next iPhone.

15 reasons to jailbreak your iPhone
Because it gives you choice and extreme customisation, and “breaks the device out of its jail” to allow you to install any application.
Jailbreaking, in a nutshell, gives you all of the glamour of owning an iPhone, while retaining the flexibility features of Android. The process itself is quick and easy, and is legal under U.S. law. It rarely has any effect on the App Store applications you have downloaded, but gives you an additional store (“Cydia”) to install free or even paid-for apps to make your iPhone experience even better.
